Aloe Vera & Your Skin

Skin - Basic Statistics

Your skin is not merely the covering of your body, it is a very vital organ. In fact, it is the largest one and along with the heart the most important organ. Without either the skin or the heart life would be impossible.

To appreciate the complexities lets look at the statistics of one square inch of skin.

  • 78 nerves
  • 20 blood vessels
  • 12 sensory apparatuses for heat
  • 80 sensory apparatuses for cold
  • 65 follicles and muscles
  • 100 sebaceous glands
  • 165 pressure apparatuses for the sense of touch
  • 650 sweat glands
  • 1,300 nerve endings to record pain
  • 19,500 sensory points at the ends of verve fibers
  • 20,000,000 (20 Million) cells

Multiply all these components by and average of twenty-one square feet ranging in thickness from five to seventy layers and you have some idea of the skin being much more than a simple covering for the body.
Each skin layer is in a continuous process of movement. New skin cells are constantly created and forced upward to the surface by the birth of newer cells below. The surface cells are dead as they become hard they are cast off to make room for the fresher more active cells. This complete process occurs in a 28-day cycle.

Skin Functions

The skin is a thermostatic marvel that regulates and maintains the body temperature at about 98.6º, allowing us to adjust to our environment.
It performs pigmentation, the remarkable function of coloring the skin itself with a substance called melanin -99% Pure Aloe Gel which is what freckles, sun tan and brown spots are made of. Melanin determines skin tone and color.

The skin keeps bacteria, viruses and fungi out and keeps vital fluids in. It shields us from harmful gases and alkalies that could upset the chemical composition of the blood.
It is a medical magnifying glass that reveals most ailment that occur below the surface. It is directly related to all internal organs. Essential internal organs are protected from damage by the skin and shocks are absorbed by it. By giving off one or two quarts of perspiration through the sweat ducts every day, the body provides exits (pores) for excretion of body wastes.

Aloe Vera & Healing

To watch the Aloe Vera heals itself is an awe-inspiring sight. Its long, heavy, spiny leaves have no stalks or wood branches to keep them upright. The pressure of the thick extract is their only support.
When a leaf is slashed by a sharp knife, the extract gushes out in a sudden spurt. In a matter of seconds, the wound develops a thins film - a few minutes later a strong, protective, rubbery coating seals off any further loss of fluid. Before long, the wound is completely healed.

After World War II, American Government scientists discovered that Japanese exposed to the A-bomb had their radiation burns healed in a remarkably short time by applying Aloe Vera to the wounds.
Further analysis by the scientists revealed that Aloe Vera extract is a highly complex and ingenious mixture of natural antibiotics, astringent, coagulating agents, pain inhibitors, penetrating agents and tissue growth stimulators which accelerate the healing process of injured tissue.
